Stunning gardens (highly acclaimed, especially the vegetable one!). Flower gardens, avenues, borders, island pavilions, canals and a 150-year old wisteria tunnel leading to expanses of sweeping lawns and ancient trees. The organically managed kitchen garden supplies produce to the Orangery Restaurant. A 1,000-yew maze, with a gothic tower at its centre, offers panoramic views and a secret tunnel leads to a waterfall in the sunken garden.
The 15th century Castle surrounded by 1000 acres of stunning parkland, pasture and woodlands with the river Lugg running alongside predates Hampton Court Palace by some 80 years. The land was granted by King Henry IV to Sir Rowland Lenthall at the time of his marriage to Margaret Fitzalan, daughter of the Earl of Arundel, a cousin of the King. Lenthall built the original quadrangular manor house in 1427, 12 years after his Knighthood at the battle of Azincourt (1415). In 1434 he was granted licence to crenellate the house by King Henry VI.
